Anybody Else Think the Shang-Chi Dude is GAy?

I've seen this Simu Liu guy all over the place lately as he's promoting his movie, and every time I see him, my gaydar goes ping-ping-PING!

Is it just me?

He's an Asian Canadian and some friends and I are going to see his new movie tomorrow afternoon.

Yeah, only YOU, OP. He’s not even remotely bi.

He's in show business which attracts a lot of gay men so yes, it's likely that he's gay.

He is as straight as they come. Being Asian guy does not automatically make one gay, no matter of your stereotypes.

He started as a successful stunt man before moving to acting.

Hot masculine muscled jocks still are in the highest demand. It’s just that studio porn has a paucity of them today. You can find many of the fantasy jock bros on Onlyfans, but the vast mAjority have strict limitations, and many are plain scammers

OP is a homophobe because he thinks having a weird face ("gay face") makes you gay.

You're a homophobe because you think being a stunt man and not some girly actor (liar) makes you straight.

Ok, I followed all links in this thread, and I still think he is not gay. None of the images spelled 'gay' to me.

I (white) work with a lot of Filipino men and women for 15 years. When I started I, too, thought that all the Filipino men acted gay. They were more soft spoken than what I had experienced before. They had facial features that were the opposite of rough compared from what I knew with my white-as-can-be background. And A LOT of them were really into dancing. Fact is though, they are all extremely gay friendly, but they are all happily married with kids with no gay bone in their body. The look doesn't tell you anything. And 'gay voice' seems to be a construction based on Caucasian stereotypes. There is something like Asian gay voice, but this actor does not have it.

by Anonymousreply 43September 12, 2021 2:57 PM

Wasn't Ronnie Chieng in Shang-Chi, too? Looks like they rounded up all Asian Hollywood actors who had at least a little bit of name recognition. Sandra Oh must be fuming for being overlooked in this all-star Asian cast.

I live in Toronto and have worked in the TV and film industry here and I've heard nothing about Simu Liu being gay. In fact, I've heard of him having a bit of a "creepy" reputation around younger women and that he's difficult to work with.

by Anonymousreply 45September 12, 2021 4:42 PM

Difficult in what way, r45? Do spill.

by Anonymousreply 46September 12, 2021 5:34 PM

R46 I've just heard that he's very full of himself (kind of in a narcissistic "my farts don't stink" kind of way). I've heard he was not a team player on Kim's Convenience and allegedly he felt he was the star of the show and then accused the writers of racism when they started limiting him screen time because he was the source of a lot of on set conflict and drama. He also was vocal that CBC wasn't paying him enough compared to the cast of Schitt's Creek not taking into account that Eugune Levy and Catherine O'Hara had decades of acting under their belt and were stars when that show started. See his like 20 minute written rant about Kim's Convenience on Facebook and you'll get a pretty clear idea of what a dick this guy is.

R47 Sounds like a drama queen.

Emphasis on the "queen."

by Anonymousreply 48September 12, 2021 6:04 PM

R47 I remember that post!!! He sound liked a total prissy Queen in it. He shat all over the show, its writers, and his white costars who were getting a spin-off.

If I remember correctly, none of the cast responded to his post AND he was a no show at the casts' farewell dinner.

by Anonymousreply 49September 12, 2021 6:06 PM

It's been rumoured on social media that Simu Liu is not speaking terms with any of the Kim's Convenience cast except the actress who played his mother. Allegedly Andrew Phung cannot stand him.

R63 but you are captive to the delusion that Shawn Mendes is straight. Regardless of the question of Simu Liu's orientation, I'm afraid your sense of things merits at least one "Oh, my sides!"

R60 He's not attractive, though, so that kind of blows your DL theory.

You know the studios train and coach actors on how to talk, walk, and behave. It would be no surprise to me to learn that some executive would say, "We gotta bring the gay down a few notches on this dude." But the gay sometimes slips out (see the trailer in which he says "thanks." Nuff said).

If you've read the biography of Henry Willson, Rock Hudson's agent, he said when Rock came to him, he wasn't exactly the strong, masculine Rock that ended up on movie screens. He had to be taught how to lower his voice, how to walk with a masculine gait, even how to smile so as not betray the fact that he might be gay.

I'm sure Simu was given extensive training on how to de-gay himself, especially since he was playing a comic book action hero.
